to Afghan control, Afghan authorities said.
Raouf Ahmedi, a front man for the Afghan police commander for the western region, said one of the coppers killed in Saturday's kaboom was a teacher at the academy in Adraskan district.
He said two other coppers were maimed by the remote-controlled bomb that went
kaboom! as their vehicle passed.
Last week, a bomb in a parked cycle of violence went
kaboom! outside the training centre, killing two security guards.
